Selecting the Right Accounting Firm

Owners of small businesses place much emphasis on fees when choosing their accounting firm. Fees are an important factor and need to be affordable. Often, however, business owners compare fees yet fail to scrutinize big picture issues such as: Qualifications, Expertise, Reputation, Reliability, Consulting and Communication Skills and Overall Performance.

Like all businesses, professional firms develop a fee structure by comparing their pricing to other firms providing comparable services. Firms that provide a higher quality service charge higher fees and visa versa.

Experienced decision makers know how to evaluate both factors before making a decision: Price and Performance. While price is a consideration, the overall results a firm can deliver is the primary factor in determining which accounting firm to select.

To help your business increase profits, cash and business growth, select the accounting firm from the classification that is best suited to meet your needs.
